What's new in HCL Nomad for web browsers

Release 1.0.3

  • Language support for Danish (da), Finnish (fi), Norwegian (nb), Turkish (tr).
  • Document printing support. For limitations on document printing, see Limitations.
  • Application switcher.

    Application (app) switcher is an optional, configurable dropdown menu displayed on the left of HCL Nomad for web browsers' navigation bar. Each app switcher menu entry shows an application icon followed by the application’s name. Clicking on an app switcher menu entry navigates to the corresponding application address in a new browser tab.

    For more information, see Configuring application switcher in the Nomad Administrator documentation.

  • Shared usage.

    You can preserve multiple users’ data when Nomad for web browsers is being accessed on a shared computer.

    For administrators, see Shared usage (Nomad for web browsers) in the Nomad Administrator documentation.

  • LotusScript NotesGPS class support.

    For more information, see NotesGPS (LotusScript) in the Domino Designer documentation.

  • Tech Preview: Replication.

    This feature will be generally available in a future release, as it relies on a Google Chrome feature that has not been generally released. To enable this feature, follow the steps in Replication.

Release 1.0.2

  • Added support for Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML).

    This feature enables Nomad users to authenticate through a SAML IdP rather than the Nomad server. For information, see Configuring SAML authentication in the HCL SafeLinx documentation.

  • Added support for Nomad federated login.

    With Nomad federated login, users do not need to enter their Notes ID passwords during initial configuration of Nomad for web browsers. They are presented with a login page from a SAML IdP to authenticate and download their IDs from the ID Vault. For more information, see Nomad federated login in the Domino documentation.

  • Added support for panagenda MarvelClient Web Migration.

    With panagenda MarvelClient Web Migration, a user's Workspace and Recent Applications can automatically migrate to Nomad Web during the client's initial setup. For more information on enabling this feature, see panagenda MarvelClient Web Migration in the Nomad Administrator documentation.

    • Visual updates and improved keyboard usage in the top Navigation Bar.
    • Visual updates to the Application Tab Bar.

Release 1.0.1

  • Added support for the following languages: German, Spanish, French, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Dutch, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Swedish, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese

    For more information, see HCL Nomad and panagenda MarvelClient in the Administrator documentation.

  • Added support for Nomad Federated Login.
    Enabling Nomad Federated Login allows the end user to run HCL Nomad and perform secure operations without being prompted for a Notes ID password. This requires an Identity Provider that supports SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language).
    Note: Nomad Federated Login support is included but at a beta level, which means the feature may be used to provide feedback but is not officially supported until a subsequent release.

    For more information, see System requirements.

    In addition to the regular keyboard, alternate keyboards, Mac long press, Mac Option notation, and Input Method Editors (IMEs) are now supported. Previously, certain characters could only be entered via copy + paste.
